Affinity Designer for Windows - 1.10.5

Recommended Posts

  • Staff

We are pleased to announce an update for the Windows release of Affinity Designer, version 1.10.5

The detailed changes in Affinity Designer for Windows 1.10.5 (over the last release Affinity Designer for Windows 1.10.4) are as follows:

Fixes & Improvements:

  • Fixed registration failure (will now use the browser to complete registration, rather than attempt it in-app)
  • Improved performance of artboards with many Text Frames.
  • Fixed possible rendering issues with Raster elements.
  • Help & localisation improvements.

The improvements in 1.10 over 1.9 are listed in some detail in this 1.10.0 Designer Windows update announcement

UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (free for existing customers)

The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in Help > About Affinity Designer).

If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store— each time you start the Affinity Store software it will check for updates and offer any available update. The latest update will install over the top of any earlier version, with no need to uninstall. You can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "Download" button in there. Alternatively, this new release (and previous versions of Affinity Designer for Windows) can be downloaded from this link (that installer is NOT for Windows Store purchases and needs a product key).

If you’ve purchased from the Microsoft Store— Microsoft Store updates are done automatically by the operating system (each time you start the application). If this does not happen for you, open the Windows Store app and click the three dots in the top right corner of the app and then go to Downloads and Updates. Click Get Updates. This should hopefully force the update to show.

My Win10 (21H2) desktop returns "Setup failed" message shorty after attempting Designer, Photo, and Publisher installations. No previous version update problems were encountered in the past. Please advise.

UPDATE: Those apps install with no problem after a fresh system reboot.

Can I suggest you put links to release notes in the download landing page (the page that appears when the software prompts you that there is a new version available)? That landing page contains a nice list of all builds, but no indication about the fixes in each, which is very unhelpful. Even Adobe makes it easier to see what [little] has changed in each new build of their dusty relics; I had to use Google to find this page for Designer!

When changing the text alignment the view is not updating and the font seams to be cutting.

You should create a new topic in Designer V1 Bugs Found on Windows (as requested above, though the link there now goes to the V2 bugs forum).

Edit: But I see you've also done that. Thanks!
